Publisher's Summary

When Max, Kyle, and Emma are sent to live with their reclusive grandfather, they think he's crazy, especially when he tells them about his time machine. But after Emma is kidnapped at the exact time that her grandfather predicted, Max and Kyle are forced to believe his eccentric stories - even the one about the Chronal Engine in the basement.

Now, to save Emma, Max, Kyle, and their new friend Petra must pile into a VW Bug, and use the Chronal Engine to take the road trip of a lifetime - right back to the Cretaceous period. With dangers all around, the teens find themselves dodging car-crushing herbivores in addition to the terrifying T. Rex. In this ancient environment, can three contemporary teens hunt down a kidnapper, forage for food, and survive long enough to return home?

    Story
    "A fine adventuring read with some bite.."

    My son told me about this book(as a school assignment) and I decided to find it on Audible and I have to say it was worth the money. However the only disappointing part was that I feel it was not long enough I look forward to another book or even under the book for series and my son is also very impressed with the book it talks about time travel dinosaur study all the sci-fi stuff you'd expect
    I definitely see the simil to "A Very Strange Trip" by L.Ron Hubbard and that the mystery of the ending leaves a lot of fun theories to ponder....

    "Nothing scary here ..."

    It was a fun listen ! Not too heavy , not too light , just right . Do you have three hours to kill in the car ? Sit back , set the cruise control and enjoy .

    Story
    "Enjoyable enough but the narration is a bit flat"

    This was a good time travelling story, with dinosaurs, fossils and a bit of a mystery and a few cliff hangers thrown in.

    Some of the reviews for the story were a bit lukewarm and hinted that the plot might be full of holes. We thought it was a lot better than that, but I did feel that the narration left a little bit to be desired, especially when compared to the quality of other narrators we've listened to. Maybe that's just the difference between American narrations and UK narrations.

    Don't be put off by the other reviews. Our 6 nearly 7 year old son was able to keep up with the plot and whenever we had to get out of the car for a break we were keen enough to find out what was going to happen next.
